Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Stating that ``the notion that women have to make a choice between work and family . . . is insidious and distressing,'' the authors attack the concept of the ``Mommy Track,'' a career path accommodating working mothers who have not chosen their jobs over their families. Ferguson, a behavioral scientist at the University of Southern California, and Dunphy, author of Save Our Schools, Save Our Children , here interview women who believe they have combined their roles as mothers and careerists without compromising their commitment to either: chief justice Sandra Day O'Connor, New York Times Book Review editor Rebecca Sinkler, former Doubleday publisher Nancy Evans et al. Other chapters directed toward employees and employers suggest strategies by which both parties can optimize their partnership. The helpful example of these paragons does not adequately address, however, the problems met by less privileged women in their struggles to handle harmoniously the demands of workplace and home. (Jan.)
Library Journal
Who is the real audience for this book? Attacking the ``Mommy Track'' theory that working women must sacrifice their families for their careers, it features interviews with such high-powered women as Debbie Fields of Mrs. Field's Cookies, former Doubleday publisher Nancy Evans, and Congresswoman Barbara Boxer, all of whom earn over $100,000 a year and have managed to ``have it all'': career, marriage, family. The authors explore their personalities, influences, obstacles, strategies for success and for coping with guilt. But will library patrons who don't make $100,000 find comfort in the fact that Sandra Day O'Connor often did not have time to replace her sons' worn sneakers, or frustration in not being able to afford Barbara Boxer's quality time, an annual Christmas vacation in Hawaii? An interesting book, but not an essential purchase for most libraries.-- Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, N.Y.
